Topic: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Hello.

Is it normal, that:

I have my Historic Data from my Trade Account Activ Trades download and put it in FSB, as in Manual and Tutorial Videos show.

When i have a Strategie and make EA with this and check it then in MT4 Tester. The Trades never the same.

Example:

In FSB start Trade at 20.07.2016 - 04:45 hour -> in MT4 Tester the Trade starts at 20.07.2016 - 13:20 hour

Is that normal?

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Attach the strategy for check-up.

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

It is with all Strategies that i build.

Example here:

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Thanks for checking.

Have you any Idea, what i make Wrong? I have the Historical Data take from MT4 Trade Account and load with the Tool from here, Export Data to .csv

I have no Idea more, what can i make wrong.

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Your expert opens positions at "Bar Closing".  This is not what we usually do.

As you probably know, MT has bugs and cannot test such experts properly. Try using the "Control Points" method.
Even better, change "Bar Closing" to "Bar Opening".

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

I use in MT4 Controll Points.

But every Strategie is different to FSB build sad (i have ~ 30 testet)

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Check if you use the same data and set the same star and end date sin the MT tester.

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

All this i have make.

I have download the Data with your Tool: Export Data to .CSV

I have the same Start and End Date make

But every Time different ..

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

For Example a Picture with Chart in FSB and Chart with same Dates in MT4 Tester

Same Dates, same Start, and End.

First Chart is MT4, under this is FSB

All Results very Different.

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

One area we do not have for evaluation is lag time between your computer and broker.

We do not know if the spread is set up properly in your FSBPro.

It is most important that FSBPro settings are accurate. Be sure to verify all of your settings

Please check on those as this is discussed.

Myself, I do not use the Strategy Tester, I develop my strategies and attach them to a chart for trading as I trust FSBPro instead of MT4.

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Thank you for your Statement.

I think i make now the Strategies in Real Chart with 0.01 Lot.

That is not much, when not work.

Then i can see, how it works and i hope it is ok smile

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Another Question.

What for settings you use in Generator to find Strategies? I mean what for a Time Setting to search. 60 Minutes as Mr. Popov in Tutroial Videos or longer?

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Some people like the 5 minute chart. Myself I like the 4 hour and daily.

We have to experimnet and decide for ourselves what might be best for our own purposes.

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

No i mean not the Timeframe.

I mean the Time to search in Generator. In Tutorial Videos this time is 60 Minutes for work the Generator.

What for time you use to find Strategies, work-time in generator?

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

I use my generator a lot...... sometimes for two or three days..... sometimes for a couple weeks.

I like to get a lot of different solutions.

Each indicator has several different calculations and combined with a couple other indicators........ a huge number of possibilities.

So I like to let the thing run and run so I can see what solutions it might come up with.

Other people may like to  let it run for a few hours., we all approach things differently.

I like to see 500 items or more in the collection and then woprk with some of those that look interesting and get another few hundred....

FSBPro has so many possible solutions for a strategy. I feel it is best (for me) to look at many... and get ideas.

I have had the generator running now for a couple hours - no results.... I will have to see what I have set up wrong and start over....

It is all a matter of personal preferences and choices...... a person has to experiment and test until they find solutions.

Enjoy!!

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Hello Marcus,

We see that Footon demonstrates equal signals in MT and in the FSB Pro tests. Please check again if your data and settings are correct. It is not possible all FSB Pro strategies to show different results because of a bug. It is possible your broker to have a hidden commission. Check if the chart price corresponds with the Bid price. If the Bid is lower, it is not OK.

Here is how it should be:

You can try to find the problem by comparing separate entry and exits.

Make a very simple expert. Lets say:
Enter long when Momentum MT crosses the Level 100 upward. Reverse the position on downward cross.

Compare several deals.

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Hello.

Big thanks to Blaiserboy and Mr. Popov.

I will test it and hope all is good.

Thanks smile

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

I just checked one broker that I know that applies a commission when trading. Unfortunately this commission is not in the MT symbols settings.

Here is a screenshot of a actual position and the exported settings.

Please check if your broker applies a commission. If this is the case, you have to set a corresponding commission in FSB Pro.

(The commission filed may not be visible in MT. You can make it visible from the right mouse click context menu.)

Re: Different Trades FSB and MT4

Thank you, but i use Activ Trades, the same what you have in Tutorial. No Provision with Activ Trades.
